Abstract

Monckeberg arteriosclerosis is often an incidental finding recognized at plain radiography. It differs from the more common atherosclerosis in that the tunica intima remains unaffected; hence, the vessel lumen is preserved. Monckeberg arteriosclerosis is most commonly seen in patients with diabetes and patients with end-stage renal disease. In this short communication, the author presents a rare case of Monckeberg arteriosclerosis affecting the facial vasculature.
